App back

May 11, 2016 9:15 PM

Finally got the app to work again. Feeling very bad this evening. I think every joint hurts, my elbow is swollen after doing exercises doc gave me. Oh great, it is worse! My back is breaking, just crumbling. Now to the pos stuff. I am finally getting my PA for the med for GERD. I did lodge a complaint with the medical office manager about the shabby, insulting treatment I received from her meds coordinator. According to the doc assistant this not the first time Camilla (Lol) has shown this behavior. My gp has decided to refer me to a rheumatologist. I have just begun testing tincture #2. The first one was ok. It is another weapon in my pain arsenal. Tincture #1 was unassuming. It didn't upet my stomach & was soothing. #2 is twice as strong, so time will tell. It is gorgeous hot day here, but I stayed in all day in such pain. Hope you are having a "good" pain p.m.

Hi silvrrry, I know well about losing days, losing years, of beautiful days to pain. My mom used to talk about tinctures but i don't remember ...What are they?

I was going to ask the same question...

It is an herb steeped in a liquid vehicle, for a time & strained & bottled to be a remedy in a dropper bottle. My tincture is weed suspended in everclear. I take 4 drops placed under my tongue. This management tool I have only just begun to try. I am am in controlled testing. Have a low pain day. At present I am parked against a heating pad after pt exercise.

Weed as in marijuana?? I have heard of these tinctures and have read several reviews from people who said it worked wonders for them. I hope and pray that it helps you. {{{Hugs}}}💕🙏🏻🌻😊

Thank you so much Alwayz. As I said we are in testing mode right now. I have been reading about sprays and tinctures with both being put under the tongue. My doc says he is not enthusiastic because dosage cannot be Accurately measured with marijuana. We are keeping track of ounces of liquid and are going by one bud-two bud measure. It is pretty simple. I can't really say how I feel As it is early days yet. I will post about it when I know.
I dearly hope you have a good pain day. My back has been so painful. The last two perfectly lovely days I have been on the heating pad or on my bed. And all the body aches. I can't understand why I feel so bad in the rest of my body beyond my back. I am going to sit here & write out everything I remember medically for the rheum. so I will feel more prepared. Every time I post here, this app freezes for 2-3 days so it always appears I post & run. Lol

Silvrrry, my fingers are crossed!! I hope it works. I'm getting closet and closer to saying I'm fuck it and smoking a joint to see if it helps. Who knows. It may not help my pain but make me so high I won't give a shit!! LOL!!{{Hugs}}💕🙏🏻🌻
